Hendrix College Reviews
I love Hendrix. I am a current freshman here and I have loved every moment. Orientation week makes you feel so welcome in a new environment, there's so much to do on and off campus! You will meet people of all walks of life so you don't have to worry about fitting in because you will surely find your place here. The academics are wonderful. I have not met a teacher that does not love their field of study and what they do. If you ever need help, office hours are held almost daily and most teachers will even give you their phone number in case you need to call them to ask a question. T The cafeteria staff is amazing and ultra-kind. They make an effort to learn your name and ask you about your day. Birthdays are a huge deal at Hendrix. We have a birthday song, the lunch staff comes out with a cake, and your friends throw you into the fountain (no matter the weather). Life at Hendrix is never dull and there's a place for everyone.
It's a small school in a small Southern town so if you're looking for a bustling nightlife and and 20-story dorms, this school isn't for you. If you want to go to a school with great professors, a welcoming and tight-knit sense of community, and countless experiences to grow as a person, Hendrix is the place for you. I graduated in 2012, and without question the four years I spent there were the best of my life. So many friends, experiences, lessons, and memories that have profoundly impacted me and will stay with me forever.
If you need help with ANYTHING, people are there for you. That, the community, and emphasis on diversity/world views are the best things about Hendrix. It has really good food, its quirks, and a beautiful campus. Classes are great because there's a range from intro to really hard. It's a liberal arts school, so you have to take a bunch of different classes besides your major but that's great because it keeps things interesting and lets you find interesting things that you'd never think of taking otherwise. Some parties are majorly fun. Clubs throw a lot of events/parties that everyone is invited to. Here, you feel like you're being taken care of but at the same time growing up and you have lots of independence. Only complaints are the dorms are gross and hard to get out of after Freshman year, the town really sucks.
